Re: [TheCaptain] Toggle to unTwist?

In reply to:
The only canopy I have ever used a toggle to unspin on was a tandem PT 365 and trust me some times they can spin up tight enough to not allow a toggle to be pulled as I have been there and done that.
Also once again the best anwser is not to load a canopy at 1.6 to 1 with 122 jumps.

I had to use this method on an Icarus 330 this weekend. It was 4 or so twists and for some reason I couldn't even get us started in the right direction with mere kicking. After a dozen or so attempts to kick out, I decided to give something else a try. Pulled a toggle and 2 seconds later was straightened out. I still wouldn't recommend it as the first course of action, but I was glad to have the idea sitting in my bag of tricks.

And yes, jumping a Diablo at 1.3 or any canopy at 1.6 with only 122 jumps is just plain dumb.
